A year after picking Faith Ekakitie first overall in the CFL Draft, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers cut him

  A year after picking Faith Ekakitie first overall in the CFL Draft, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers cut him It’s pretty remarkable to see someone go from the first-overall pick in a league’s draft to a training camp cut a year later, but that’s what happened with former Iowa Hawkeyes’ defensive tackle Faith Ekakitie. Ekakitie was a solid player at Iowa, playing in 13 games in his senior year in 2016 and recording 39 total tackles (while bizarrely also making headlines for a Pokemon Go incident), and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers selected him first overall in the 2017 CFL draft (of Canadian players; Ekakitie is from Brampton, Ontario), but he played in just 14 (of 18) regular-season games in his first season and recorded just five tackles.

After a 3-0 regular season (where they outscored opponents 114-21), the Riot are set to start the playoffs against the Edmonton Storm Sunday, but they are facing an off-field challenge. Namely, someone stole their team manager’s van, complete with the team’s uniforms. The team put out an appeal for help on Twitter Monday:
